Classics Club Meme- Modern Classics (February 2015)

The meme question for the Classics Club this month is:
"What about Modern Classics? Pick a book published since 2000 and say why you think it will be considered a classic in the future."
My mind immediately leaped to one book... one that when I read it thought it must have been written decades before it was. That book is of course The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Already, I think that The Book Thief is considered somewhat of a modern classic, which is telling I think for the future. It has moving, relatable and humorous characters, a surprising, beautiful and inspiring plot and all of this set in the backdrop of German during World War II. In my opinion, the book reads much like a classic. Having death as the narrator lends a tone to the book that I think is sometimes almost like Dickens, though only in some aspects. The wit I would dare to say sometimes reminds me of Austen. There are additional tidbits from the book that remind of classic works of literature that lead me to conclude that this book will most likely be a classic in the future.
